This stunning coat is in excellent vintage condition: I can find no flaws other than a needed stitch on the edge of the left pocket (see photo #3) and a few minute, barely discernible catches in the wool on the left side near the bottom, as magnified in photo #5.). Please be sure to note the striking 1" wide trim down the front and along the neckline and its asymmetrical placement on each sleeve; note, too, the 6" long slit pocket at each hip, the yoke on the top front and repeated in the back, making for a pretty pleating affect, and the gathering of the shoulders that makes for the illusion of the iconic padding of the 1940s. There is a 1" ridged self covered button at the top. The interior is lined in Merlot satin.

The coat measures approximately 17" across the shoulders, 19" from armpit to armpit; of the sleeve; the sleeves are approximately 25" long and the back length, 50".

What a wonderful addition to your vintage collection; this piece is sure to enhance your vintage or contemporary ensemble: it is a prime example of wearable 1940s-1950s style.
